It is important to keep your dog's coat clean and healthy. Bathing your dog on a regular basis can help you achieve this. It is important however, not to over bathe your dog as this can cause skin irritations by removing the natural oils from the coat. A general rule of thumb is to bath your dog every 6-8 weeks. We offer a wide variety of shampoos and conditioners to choose from. The specialty baths are an add-on service to our package services for an additional $10.
We offer a Furminator bath that uses a special shampoo and conditioner designed to stimulate the hair follicles and loosen the undercoat. This encourages any dead hair fall out. This bath takes about 40 minutes to complete as both the shampoo and conditioner must stay on your dog for 15 minutes each. It costs an extra $10 but is definitely worth it. This works especially well on short and smooth coated dogs.
Flea and Tick Control
Fleas and ticks are troublesome pests that live on your dog by sucking its blood. It is important to check your dog's skin regularly for signs of these parasites. Fleas leave tiny specks of dried blood that looks like grains of black pepper. Ticks will bury their head into your dog's skin so you will only see about 1/2 of the tick sticking out. The tick is grey in colour. It is important to check your pet even after the warmer weather. Despite the cooler temperatures in the fall season, fleas and ticks are very resilient.
We offer a flea and tick control shampoo that will kill these parasites. It cleans and conditions the coat and leaves the pet smelling fresh and clean!
